In hp Deskjet 1050, the scanner software is built into the software that controls the print functionality of the printer.

Here is how to get to the scanner software.

If you are using a computer running on windows OS, navigate to your desktop screen to locate the printer driver software shortcut and click on it.

Now you should see a screen similar to the one below:

On the default screen that just opened is the “print and scan” tab where you can see what your printer is printing as well as pause printing or even abort the printing if you don’t want it to be completed

In this tab, there is an option too to maintain your printer by aligning the ink cartridges and print a diagnostic page.

The default paper size and print quality is also set in this tab under “Set preferences”

Under “Customize your printer” you can set a custom name for your printer and the security settings.

Then underneath the above-mentioned options in the “Scan a document or photo” which opens the scan dialog box.

Aside from these options, there are other options in other tabs such as ePrintcenters, shop, help, utilities and estimated ink levels.

We are not going into those tabs today since we are focusing on the 1050 scanner software.

So let’s explore a bit of hp Deskjet 1050 scanner software

Since all you want to do is to scan a document, click on the “Scan a Document or Photo” as seen in this image.

Here is where you can also set the file format for the output of your scanned document.

From the list of the available file formats for output, you can choose from JPEG, PDF, and TIFF; whichever one that suits your preference.

Another important thing you need to take into consideration in this sections is the image dpi if you are scanning to a photo file instead of other formats.

That will help you have a clearer soft picture of the hard copy document you fed the printer/scanner with.

By default, your dpi will be set to 200 dpi, that may give you a blurred output depending on the file size; you are at liberty to set this to a higher dpi for a clearer output.

Once you are done with setting the scanner options to your preference, you can then start scanning the document.

Before you proceed with the scanning, you must have placed the document in the printer, else, a blank screen will be scanned.
